EDS-Optimized E-chips

Minimizing the amount of material between the sample and detector, this process maximizes EDS Counts Per Second (CPS).

Found on Poseidon
Patent# EU: 003371632-0001+0002

Closed-Cell Holder Design

The closed-cell holder design was one of the innovations that brought in situ techniques to numerous areas of research, enabling high resolution sample imaging in liquid and gaseous environments which was previously impossible. Using two self-aligning E-chips to safely encapsulate samples, this holder design transforms any TEM or STEM into a nanoscale in situ laboratory.
